Dandenong Leader – February 11th 2020.
Elizabeth Thomas, chief executive of homelessness and crisis support group Wayss, said the organisation assisted more than 15,000 people in Melbourne’s south east in the past year.
“A significant number of those people came to our Dandenong office looking for affordable housing,” Ms Thomas said.
“Homelessness is no longer hidden – it is something that is front of mind for the community,” she said.
She said Greater Dandenong desperately needed a greater range of affordable housing and accommodation options.
“It’s about moving beyond rooming houses to permanent accommodation that helps people rebuild meaningful, sustainable lives,” she said.
